If the Auberge du Champ de Mars is not located in the historic parts of Meaux, it is really not far away.
Everything tells of authenticity in this restaurant that really wants to respect the values of a region rich of its traditions. In a big house, typical for the region, Michel and Madeleine Lefebvre welcome you in to enjoy some highly gourmet moments in truly relaxing settings. The dining room is one of those places where nothing is left to chance: elegant tables, colourful tablecloths, well thought through yet authentic décor, wood floor polished the old fashioned way and visible stones... This is a pleasant place where the atmosphere is friendly. The room is in fact a reflection of the hostess, Madeleine, who will welcome you and care about your every wish with a smile that never disappears.
Michel’s cuisine is the other pleasant surprise of this charming restaurant. He has worked in the restaurant business for 24 years, has been in Meaux for 8, one can really say that this passionate Chef knows his business. He completely trusts his inventive instincts and he composes a truly surprising cuisine. Light is a keyword to describe his art, his compositions are always well thought through and well presented. His instinct is not his only inspiration, he gets ideas from his contacts with others as well; the menu changes on a regular basis and it only gets richer thanks to the advice and influences he comes across.
The place is warm, it is meant for enjoying the good things of life. This restaurant is in fact ideal for an introduction to the world of gourmet cuisine that sometimes seems so complicated; it breathes of simplicity and authenticity, it is an open and welcoming place. When the weather allows, the splendid terrace offers a relaxing moment surrounded by trees and silence.
ideal gourmet can not recommend this place enough, it is a place on the rise thanks to a unique and generous menu, a reflection of the Auberge du Champ de Mars and its adorable owners.
